Wikia, plans, and other shinies


It’s been two months since we released Regency Love 2.0, complete with Mr Graham’s story, and we’ve been so pleased with all the feedback we’ve received. We have read and delighted in your comments and emails, and want to thank you for being so super supportive and awesome—especially with regards to a new character. 😉 We’re particularly grateful towards everyone who has helped spread the word, or who has decided to make a donation with the in-app patron letters—every little bit helps!

We also finally got around to creating an online space for all you lovelies to share your thoughts and tips with one another, to which everyone can contribute. And so, we’re happy to present the Regency Love Wikia—please do check it out, and add anything you’d like to it. We’ll occasionally visit the pages to do a bit of house-keeping and to answer any questions to some of the more difficult things (such as how to obtain certain achievements), but for the most part, the Wikia is in your hands. We hope you’ll have lots of fun!

Additionally, we wanted to update you on our current progress and plans for Regency Love:

  • We have received your bug and typo reports, and Melody is working on fixing them. Some bugs can be super sneaky, so they might take some time to hunt down.
  • We are working on an iPad version, which will contain a new User Interface to maximise the screen space and make reading the text more comfortable.
  • There is a related project in the works: something a little different,  which we hope you’ll enjoy. More will be revealed in the next few weeks, when a few things are finalised.

And finally, I’m giving a presentation about Regency Love at this year’s BSECS postgraduate conference. I’ll be filming the presentation so I can post it afterwards—there’ll be lots of behind-the-scenes and methodological shinies for those who are interested in some additional geekery.

As always, thank you so much for your wonderful support. Until next time!

Found a bug or typo in Regency Love? Let us know here!

Welcome to the official Regency Love bugs and typos post, where we rely on your keenness and kindness to keep the game relatively free of pesky things. If you’ve found something that seems amiss, please check the comments to see if your bug/typo hasn’t already been reported—and if it hasn’t, please leave us a comment so we can add it to our to-do list!

If it is convenient for you to do so, please also send us a screenshot of the bug via

Many thanks in advance for your contribution and support!

Many thanks to those who have contributed to our hunt for bugs and typos! Since we’ve included an in-game bug-reporting button in our 5 November 2015 release, this post is now ready to retire and spend the rest of its days surrounded by copious amounts of tea.

Regency Love: Quotations, if you please

This morning/yesterday evening (timezones are tricky!), we held our first Skype meeting of 2014. After discussions of turkey and pie (and snowmen!!), we moved on to planning our next app update (in about 3-4 weeks), which will include a kazillion bug fixes and lots more trivia and hangman questions. And then we thought, “Hey, we shouldn’t be hogging all the fun—maybe we should share it with our players!”

And so, we’re now asking you to contribute to the game by letting us know your favourite quotations from the Regency era (1811-1820). Simply comment on this blog post, and we’ll try to include it in the next version! For those who wish to go beyond the Regency, we’re open to anything from the long eighteenth century (roughly 1688-1815), as long as the quote is something that might feasibly be experienced by a Regency audience. For example, version A of Percy Bysshe Shelley’s “Hymn to Intellectual Beauty”, published in 1817, would be great; version B, discovered in 1976, would be a little amiss.


Hint: It’s from Austen’s Persuasion.

Although we adore Jane Austen quotations, please don’t feel limited by her works—there’s a whole range of popular writing Jane Austen and her contemporaries might have read. Some of these writers include: Maria Edgeworth, William Wordsworth, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Edmund Burke, Mary Wollstonecraft, Thomas Moore, Walter Scott, William Blake, Matthew Gregory Lewis, Ann Radcliffe, Sydney Owenson/Lady Morgan, Lord Byron, Percy Bysshe Shelley, John Keats, Fanny Burney, Mary Shelley, and I think I’ll stop now before I fully reveal my nerdiness…

Before sharing your quotes, please do check the comments to make sure they haven’t already been posted. We know some quotes are a lot more popular than others, but we don’t want to make the less popular ones feel sad and overlooked! If you know anyone (iOS gamer or no) who’s a long eighteenth century walking dictionary, please share this with them, too!

When you’re ready, please submit your quotations in the following format:

Author/writer — title (year of publication)

Here’s an example:

It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife.
Jane Austen — Pride and Prejudice (1813)

This format will super helpful for when we fiddle with the coding, and will also help us wean out duplicates (of which we hope there will be none)!

Post your quotes by Sunday, 26 January (Australia Day!) in order for them to be included in the next update. Thanks for helping us, and we look forward to your submissions!

(And for those who might be wondering if it’s possible to contribute to the trivia questions as well: yes indeedy! We’re fine-tuning the submission process and will have something up soon!)
